A High-resolution display for tablets could soon be on the way thanks to Samsung. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. along with Nuovoyance unveiled a new 10.1-inch tablet display that uses PenTile RGBW technology. The display will get the full unveiling treatment next week at SID Display Week 2011 in California, but the main features and some photos of the raw display have been released today.
Before getting to the info released on the display you should learn a bit about Nouvoyance. Nouvoyance is a company that is owned by Samsung Electronics, they have launched PenTile displays in the past with their partnership with Samsung for phones. The PenTile displays released thus far provided users with vibrant colors and used the RGB technology.
Now on to the display itself. The new display which measures 10.1-inches is going to be the first WQXGA resolution display for tablets yet, but right now specific models that will use it haven’t been announced. The WQXGA resolution on this display has 2560 by 1600 pixels, a ppi (pixel per inch) count of 300, which makes this display also the first ‘retina’ display.
The main new feature for the display on a technical level is the use of RGBW instead of the standard RGB you get with most displays out there, RGBW keeps the Red, Green and Blue colors and adds support for White. Nouvoyance is convinced the new PenTile displays with the RGBW tech. is going to knock your socks off with it’s vibrancy and overall quality.
